This site was originally intended to follow us round the Baltic during our trip in 2003. As we were going
to be away from the UK for over three months, this site was put together to keep family and friends in touch with us. In
the end, although it definitely helped to to keep people 'close', Pat's phone bill to her mum was larger than that for
Some people don't like planning, but for us its half the fun. When we went to plan the trip, despite the
best efforts of the CA's Baltic Section, we found it difficult get a clear view of the best places to go. There is a
mass of information available - and in a way we were overwhelmed with detail. Many of the available guides concentrate
on the mechanics of navigation, and don't have any sense of local colour. Local guides and websites tend to be in the native
language. We therefore decided that there ought to be something available - in English - which gave an introduction to potential
new visitors to the area.
Kissen is currently based in the Baltic, and likely to stay there for a few years. This site has been
steadily growing, (in popularity as well as size) as we travel around, as is planned to continue to grow. We got to Finland last year, and hope to get in some of the Baltic states, before making it back to Denmark at the end of the year.
